    Actually, that's why Oprah and Oz are suing, they didn't endorse anything. What they said is Acai berry companies are falsely promoting their products with fake endorsements.

    She's only doing this because she needs the worlds supply to keep her fat ass in check.
    Anyway just to be safe I'm changing my copy to as loved by Opera's legal team.

    Oprah is now actually saying we shouldn't buy acai berry:). Maybe that's why I couldn't sell any...

    So in what ways have affiliates violated the law. Most of the sites I have seen say nothing about being endorsed by Oprah or Oz, they simply have banner that says as seen on Oprah, Oz, Fox News, etc. That is not specifically saying that any tv show has endorsed a product, that specifically says that acai berry has been seen on that form of media and it has.

    I believe it's the "implied endorsement" that is causing the problem as well as using Oprah's images and brand without permission. When you're dealing with huge brands like the "Oprah" brand, then a whole new world of legal issues opens up. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    who cares? The judgment (if any) against the companies would be a joke compared to the BOAT LOADS of cash they made from selling bottles of Acai (cost around a buck at most) for $89+ a month.

    If i could make 500 mil but in the end got sued for 50-100 of it... you bet your ass i'd still do it.

    Shit like that happens all the time with the pharmacutical (sp?) companies. That's why I just laugh when I hear all those commercials with the side effects. "suicidal thoughts" "depression" "sleep walking". Makes me think there has to be more and I end of being correct most of the time. I don't even like to take asprin. Had to take vicodin before I left the dentist office after my wisdom teeth removed. That whole day was a blur. All I remember was throwing up, drowsy and my violent dreams. Stop taking it the next day and just endured the pain/
